From the Ground Up explores relationships between people and their environments, as well as interactions between the natural and the man-made. ICA teen artists express ideas about the ways in which they experience nature, the most unusual places they’ve found nature, and where they’ve seen an absence of nature.
This exhibition was organized by the ICA’s Teen Exhibitions Program, a group of creative teens who work together to plan, organize, and install exhibitions in the ICA Teen Gallery. This gallery is a space for us to imagine new ways of presenting work, and to grow in our own creative practice by collaborating with one another and ICA staff.
The artists included in the gallery are members of other ICA Teen Programs, including AMP: Music Production, Fast Forward, Photo Collective, Special Focus, and Teen Arts Council. Special thanks to all the collaborators who made this happen, including many staff at the ICA. See the bottom of this page for a full list.
From the Ground Up: Nature and the Man-Made will be on view in the Teen Gallery at the ICA’s Seaport Studio through May 30, 2024.
